the xx - Islands
Snark Alert: With apologies to Beach House, the xx might be the most over-hyped thing in creation since the rhythm method. Not to say they don't make quality shit...but damn. They're a bit too cool on the indie-webs these days. Why? Because that whole sphere of music has been unbelievably dull for the last year and a half, and anything marginally good gets praise/press out the ass. Don't believe me?! How many albums made after 2008 are getting heavy rotation status on your iPod right now?
ANYWAY...blogger douche-baggery aside. I really do love this song. It would hold up in any time period.
